Thanks Liam for your reply. 
I print to PDF from POS system, I know also gedit has "Print to PDF" 
option, but I need virtual PDF printer managed by CUPS to use it from 
the POS system. 

Best Regards ...

What app are you printing from?

If it's LibreOffice, you don't need cups-pdf - LibreOffice can export
directly to PDF without external help.
